Question about Biostar P4M80-M4 Motherboard
I,ve only just noticed This Post, and have,nt really read all the comments. But if it,s a Matched Pair Of Ram modules, these can conflict if certain bios settings are adjusted Correctly.
Try 1 single slot of Ram in each Slot. and run computer.
If that works Fine, get another Stick or Ram, that is not Identical ( different Brand ) I.e Samsung-Kingston-infineon et,c.
This may solve your problem, i had a similar experience with dual-channel memory, Matched Pair Modules.
Hope you Sort It Out.

Almost anything is possible, but in general a 430 watt P/S should be able to run 2 gigs of ram, however that doesn't mean that the ram you purchased is the correct ram for the motherboard or that you have so many other added perpherials i.e. dual or tripe CD drives, hard drives, USB perpherials that the load is simply to great for your P/S. A rule of thumb is find out what your system ' will ' run with and then work from there. For example if a person was serous about this problem he might disconnect all power connectors to all other equipment other then his hard drive, monitor/video card, and his motherboard just to see if the system could then boot normally. If it did, chances are the memory is okay for the motherboard in normal circumstances. However if the system did not boot normally, it might be an incompatibility with the 2 gigs of memory on that particular motherboard. Memory is not a generic add-on. A person needs to make sure the memory is correct for a motherboard before installing. Also you indicate the present P/S is only 4 months old, any particular reason why you had it changed out to begin with??
